Yerevan is shocked by the murder of Karen Petrosyan in Baku

We are shocked by the murder of Karen Petrosyan in Baku, the villager of Tavush, and we express our condolences to his relatives and beloved ones, Spokesperson of Armenia's Foreign Ministry Tigran Balayan said in an interview with the radio "Liberty."

"To present a young villager as a saboteur, to subject him to various humiliations, that are contrary to all the principles of international law and elementary morality, is appalling as in its nature as to the extent it was presented to the society. Similar barbarous approach is characteristic to notorious terrorists, who first humiliate the hostage in front of cameras, then kill. Azerbaijan is going contrary to international community, continuing to violate all universal values," Balayan said.

31-year-old Petrosyan was captured by Azeris two days ago. On Friday the Azeri Defense Ministry reported his death from an alleged heart attack. But the Armenian side says the man had no heart problems and demands organizing an independent international examination.
